The door to the hall was suddenly pushed open and someone stood up and shouted, “Who goes there!”
They were discussing important matters here, so who would dare disturb them so presumptuously?
Looking up, he saw a young man walking in. At first glance, he seemed familiar, as if he had seen him somewhere before, but he couldn’t quite remember where.
Just as he was thinking about this, a gust of wind blew past him and Li Jiao quickly greeted, “Brother Yang!”
Lu Sanniang, Ruan Biting, He Yunxiang, and the others also stood up and bowed.
At this moment, the others no longer dared to underestimate Yang Kai. In the past month, most of them had witnessed Li Jiao and the others’ astonishing methods. He Yunxiang was only a 3rd order Void King Realm, and although she was powerful, her strength was limited. However, the remaining three, whether it was Li Jiao, Lu Sanniang, or Ruan Biting, all of them had unfathomable strength. In front of them, Void King Realm were like children that could be easily killed.
To be treated so seriously by these people, he was no ordinary person.
Upon seeing this, a few people let out a light exclamation of surprise.
They had obviously recognized Yang Kai. In the past, Yang Kai had come to Moon Water Star and met many people, but even after a few dozen years, this memory had not faded. Xue Yue’s husband, Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce’s son-in-law, the master of Shadowed Star, no matter which name he was, it was enough for them to pay attention to him, but they had never expected him to recognize these great figures.
Moreover, from the way these big shots treated him, it seemed like… they were quite respectful and even grateful.
He suddenly remembered that Li Jiao had casually mentioned that the reason why they had been able to help the weak on Moon Water Star was because they had been entrusted with a task.
From the looks of it, wasn’t that person Yang Kai?
For a time, he couldn’t help feeling excited.
“Brother Yang, I didn’t disappoint you. This Cultivation Star has been reclaimed and all the miscellaneous fish have been cleaned up.”
Yang Kai smiled lightly, “Thank you for your hard work. En, this time I came here with a request.”
Li Jiao smiled and said, “Brother Yang, if you have any instructions, feel free to ask.”
Yang Kai twirled his finger, “Lend me some money.”
“Ah?” Li Jiao was stunned.
“Lend me all the Source Crystals you have, I’ll return them to you when we reach the Star Boundary.”
Only now did Li Jiao confirm that he hadn’t heard wrongly and couldn’t help laughing as he quickly took out his Space Ring and transferred the Source Crystals into another Space Ring before handing it over to Yang Kai, “Only these.”
Although he was the master of Fire Dragon Palace, it was impossible for him to carry too many Source Crystals with him. After all, Fire Dragon Palace also needed to be developed. Disciples needed to spend a large amount of Source Crystals to cultivate, so if he took all the Source Crystals with him, the Sect would no longer be able to operate. What’s more, Fire Dragon Palace had previously owed High Heaven Palace a huge sum of money, so more than ninety percent of the Source Crystals in the palace had been used as payment.
As such, he only had a few hundred thousand high-grade Source Crystals in his Space Ring. Although there were a lot of mid-grade and low-grade Source Crystals, they didn’t match his status as a 3rd order Emperor Realm master.
In short, he had been living a tight life these past two years.
“I have some here,” Lu Sanniang walked over and took out her own Source Crystals. Yang Kai didn’t mind the small amount and accepted them.
Ruan Biting and He Yunxiang were helpless in this matter.
In truth, the amount of Source Crystals Yang Kai had accumulated over the years in the Star Boundary was simply incalculable, but most of them had been left behind in High Heaven Palace by him. Although he had a lot of them on hand, the more Source Crystals he had, the better.
“May I ask, Brother Li, do you have any experience in the Dao of Formation?” Yang Kai asked after putting away his Source Crystal.
Li Jiao replied, “I can’t be considered proficient, but I know a thing or two.”
“Good, come with me.” Yang Kai reached out and grabbed his arm before walking out.
Li Jiao was speechless. He didn’t know why Yang Kai was in such a hurry, but he didn’t resist, only giving Lu Sanniang a look and telling her to wait here.
Through the Space Law Formation, Yang Kai and Li Jiao returned to Nine Heavens Holy Land.
“Come!” Yang Kai leapt into the air.
Li Jiao followed closely behind.
Not long after, the two of them flew a thousand kilometers into the sky. Yang Kai pointed down and said, “Brother Li, take a look.”
Hearing this, Li Jiao looked down and couldn’t help frowning. Looking around, the entire Tongxuan Continent seemed to be wrapped in an uncomfortable aura, and on the surface of this Cultivation Star, there were many obvious traces of poison.
“What does Brother Yang want me to do?” Li Jiao vaguely understood Yang Kai’s intentions.
Yang Kai asked, “What kind of Spirit Formation can allow this Cultivation Star to quickly restore its Qi?”
Li Jiao pondered for a moment before saying, “This Li knows of a Spirit Formation called the Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation. Perhaps it will be of some help to Brother Yang.”
Yang Kai raised his brow and said, “Since that’s the case, I’ll have to trouble Brother Li to arrange the Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation.”
Li Jiao said, “The Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation are divided into several types, namely the 18 Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation, the 36 Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation, and the 72 Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation. The highest grade is the 108 Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation, each one consumes a different amount of resources, and the requirements to arrange them will also increase, but the effects will only become better. If we were in the Star Boundary, this Li can easily arrange a 108 Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation, but here…”
“I can help.”
Li Jiao couldn’t help laughing, “Brother Yang, you also know that this world rejects higher-level forces. We still need to suppress our cultivation before we can move about here, so how could a Spirit Formation not be the same? The existence of the Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation has already surpassed this world, so I’m afraid it won’t be of any use once it’s set up.”
“What if Star Master helps?”
“This Star has a Star Master?” Li Jiao was greatly surprised.
This Cultivation Star was extremely dilapidated and the World Energy had dried up, so even if there was a Star Master, he would likely be seriously ill, so he had never thought about this before. Now that he heard Yang Kai say this, he suddenly realized something.
Yang Kai wanted him to set up a Spirit Formation to restore this Cultivation Star’s Vitality, not for this Cultivation Star, but for that Star Master!
Understanding this, Li Jiao said, “If we can obtain Star Master’s help, this matter will be greatly beneficial.”
The Star Master was the ruler of this place, so even though the existence of the Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation was repelled by this world, the Star Master was able to eliminate this repulsive force, allowing the Formation to operate.
“Then what kind of Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation does Brother Yang want me to arrange?”
“It’s naturally best to arrange the best one.”
Li Jiao exclaimed, “The amount of resources required is not small.”
108 Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation were not something that even the Fire Dragon Palace would be willing to set up. For a Lower Plane’s Cultivation Star, it was not worth it.
Yang Kai firmly said, “At all costs.”
As he spoke, he tossed his Space Ring to Li Jiao for him to inspect.
Li Jiao probed it with his Divine Consciousness and immediately felt dizzy.
Inside, Source Crystals were piled up like mountains, countless of them, and all kinds of cultivation resources were dazzling to the eyes. Even as a Sect Master, his blood was boiling.
In comparison, the Source Crystals he had just lent to Yang Kai weren’t even worth a fraction.
After the shock came horror.
Yang Kai’s High Heaven Palace hadn’t been established for long, and he didn’t have any businesses to make a living, so it was impossible for him to earn so many Source Crystals. The only source of his income was to fight and plunder everywhere he went. These piles of Source Crystals and artifacts represented enemies Yang Kai had killed and destroyed.
A drop of cold sweat dripped down his forehead. Fortunately, he had not fallen out with Yang Kai in the past, otherwise, his Fire Dragon Palace fate would not have been any better.
“Is this enough?” Yang Kai asked, “If it’s not enough, I still have a mineral vein.”
“Enough, enough,” Li Jiao nodded repeatedly. If so many resources weren’t enough, it would be too unreasonable.
“Then I’ll have to trouble Brother Li. If you need any help, feel free to ask.”
“Naturally. En, I also need Brother Yang to inform the Star Master that this Li needs her cooperation.”
Immediately, Li Jiao took out a few blank jade slips and used his Divine Consciousness to engrave various essentials of the Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation before handing them to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai returned to Nine Heavens Holy Land to inform Xia Ningchang about this matter, while Li Jiao had to fly around Tongxuan Continent to carefully investigate the situation of Tongxuan Continent before deciding where to set up the formation.
In the entire Star Boundary, the Profound Heavenly Spirit Formation was not a very profound array, but it had many variations. With Xia Ningchang’s perception, it was naturally not difficult for her to comprehend its mysteries.
Yang Kai also accompanied her.
After a few days, they had become more or less familiar with each other.
One day, Xia Ningchang suddenly felt something and smiled, “That person is here.”
Saying so, she gently waved her hand.
Li Jiao was pacing back and forth outside the Nine Heavens Holy Land, thinking about how to enter or call Yang Kai to come out and pick him up when the thick fog in front of him suddenly parted, revealing a passage for him to enter.
Li Jiao immediately stepped forward.
Inside the hall, Yang Kai was waiting. Seeing Li Jiao arrive, he quickly asked, “How is Brother Li’s investigation going?”
Li Jiao replied, “Although it will take some time, it shouldn’t be a problem.”
Yang Kai was overjoyed, “Good.”
“I’ll tell Brother Yang where we’re going to set up the Spirit Formation. The early preparations will need Brother Yang to prepare in advance, and once the Spirit Formation foundation is completed, we can begin setting it up.”
As Li Jiao spoke, he took out a jade slip and tapped it.
After a flash of light, the jade slip projected a sphere.
Most of the spheres were occupied by yellow and blue colors and were not evenly distributed. Yang Kai took a look and recognized that they were projections of Tongxuan Continent. Yellow naturally represented the earth while blue was filled with water.
It seemed that Li Jiao had spent quite a bit of effort these past few days. Not only had he visited the entire Tongxuan Continent, but he had also painstakingly drawn up such a map. Although it wasn’t 100% accurate, it wasn’t far off.
After identifying it, Yang Kai pointed towards a certain spot and said, “Brother Yang, please take a look. This is where we are now.”
Yang Kai nodded, recognizing that this was Nine Heavens Holy Land’s location on Tongxuan Continent.
